hey, it's my palindrome year– 41 on the 14th. growing up i was always looking for these kind of secret connections. it made everything seem even more significant. in this way everything was the only occasion of its kind, casting a magic spell that could always be conjured somehow, by some configuration. i believe that there are so many of these that you can live out a good long life and always have one to apply to whatever age you're turning.
i borrowed this sparkly bastille day photo from here.
